“Tailgate” Officially Makes It

In 1962 the folks at Merriam Webster decided that tailgating was so popular that they needed to add the sports related definition to their dictionary:

Tailgate, adjective.  Definition: relating to or being a picnic set up on the tailgate especially of a pick-up.  Merriam Webster 1962

It was official and there was no turning back.  Tailgating would go on to become one of the country’s most popular ways to spend time for all kinds of sporting events.  What’s your favorite tailgating memory?  Let us know in the comments.
